  • Forum Post: Re: No pain, no gain?

    Good Decision, Jules. I'm wrapping week 94 , and I can assure you that there is absolutely no problem with keeping the same excercise routine going for your entire 12 week challenge, as long as you conscientiously increase the weights to fatigue the muscles. The structure of the LBWO and UBWO already...
  • Forum Post: Re: Don't think I am getting great results. How to measure?

    I never have understood our society's desire for instant gratification. My thought process was that if it took years to become the mess I was, then I shouldn't expect a turnaround in just a few weeks. Yes, it works, and yes, it's worth it. Just be patient, and try to set yourself up for...

    Looks like some major improvements to me - your tummy is way down, and you're rear is starting to tuck in. You're gonna be a knockout after C2! Keep up the great work. Jacium
  • Forum Post: Re: Cheat Day / Free Day

    As I progressed through my first challenge, I was able to eliminate the unhealthy "foods", or what I term edible junk, even on free days. Edible junk is the highly processed fat or sugar laden stuff. I learned to eat for my body and not for my mind. For me it's synergistic, because the...
  • Forum Post: Re: Help Ladies! Thighs still huge!

    M-Momma, Orrin's right - fat does not spot reduce. I had huge thighs my whole life. But, by getting my BF% under 12, I drained off nearly all the "excess' fat, and now even the thighs are right-sized, albeit they are among the larger muscles on my body. One cool thing is I can now see...
  • Forum Post: Re: I have made progress! Go figure!

    Yeah, you've hit it on the head. To see progress like this is so rewarding, and you're going to continue to work towards your goals. Has your energy level changed? I'll bet you can do more now than you did 10 weeks ago! Jacium
  • Forum Post: 2 YEARS AND GOING STRONG!

    Today is a very special day for me, for it was exactly two years ago, on April 6, 2009, that I started my first BFL Challenge. I recall vividly recording all I ate in my journal, and how I fumbled around in the fitness center that first evening, trying to figure out how to properly do a dumbbell fly...

    Marathonmama, Your results are totally awesome, and inspiration to us all, beginners and BFLmaniacs. Jacium
  • Forum Post: Re: Not Eating before workout....

    Charlie - I've never followed that part of the book - of course I do most of my workouts in the evenings on week-nights. But even on Sat. or Sun., I have to eat to get my system going. Over the long run, this won't matter much, as the energy balance will dominate. But, I can see where it might...

  • Forum Post: Re: Just over 11 Months and still going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Right - it becomes a lifestyle that's just too good to give up. I'm at over 2.5 years doing BFL, and day 1001 is rapidly approaching! It is so encouraging to see people making great progress - every weekend I see a lot of the same people at my local fitness center and they're not making much...
  • Forum Post: Re: end week 3 am I progressing to slowly?? im not even sure i see ANY change, tho I do feel better!

    The kind of transformation you are seeking takes some time. Very few if any challengers will see major changes in 3 weeks. The human body does respond, so take heart in the small changes you see and continue to nail down your new meal plan, cardio, and weight lifting plans. When I look at your photos...
  • Forum Post: Re: Just over 11 Months and still going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks, Malena, for setting me straight. I'll try to tone things down and focus on true reciprocation, as Bill defined it. I was trying to express my positive feelings for the challengers I see here, and how well they do as compared to others who don't do BFL. Jacium
  • Forum Post: Re: Just over 11 Months and still going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Brent, Keep up that great approach! Adopting this lifestyle did require us to learn so much, some of it on our own and some of it with the solid help and support given at this website. I opened my journal from my first challenge a few weeks ago, and was surprised to find I mentioned seemingly small...
  • Forum Post: Re: Just over 11 Months and still going strong!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Prodigalsun, It's really encouraging to hear that from you, and you should post more often (if you have the time, I often don't....). I have been discouraged lately with trying to help others, and my personal observation / experience has been that helping people from this website has a higher...
